elected political life. but it is really nice to be able to come here today and congratulate both of them in person for the incredible work than they have done to further strong relationships between the united states and israel. and this forum, as all of you have seen in the last 24 hours, has become an invaluable expression of not just their personal commitment, but our ability to come together to talk about complicated issues. it is already the 10th anniversary. during that short span of time, it is safe to say this has become the premiere venue for a u.s.-israel public dialogue. i guess it is no surprise because there is a lot to talk about. i am also -- i will just share with you quickly, haim and i are about the same age. when we were each in high school, haim in tel aviv and me in new england, we both picked up the bass guitar and we dreamed of making it big as rock stars. [laughter] if you ever heard the music that my bandmates and i made, and you can go on youtube and actually hear it, you would know that my first true act of public service was when i stopped playing public gigs.

people very important in electing and reelecting this president but there is a harvard poll out today suggesting that at least 56% of 18 to 29-year-olds oppose the affordable care act right now. he needs those people, as you said a moment ago to sign up for this new law. not all of them doing it just yet, jon. jenna: interesting new numbers on the young, there. ed, thank you very much. >> reporter: good to see you. jon: you just heard ed talking about the president's remarks about the economy. mr. obama addressed the major debates in washington right now and the impact on americans. listen. >> between a reckless shutdown by congressional republicans in an effort to repeal the affordable care act, and admittedly poor execution on my administration's part in implementing the latest stage of the new law, nobody has acquitted themselves these past few months. so it is not surprising that the american people's frustrations with washington are at an all-time high. jon: let's talk about with charlie hirt. he is a columnist for "the washington times." this is twice now in two days that the pr

and ezekiel emanuel may think of young people, that's a bad deal. as you point out, we've had three elections on this. there's nobody in the america who has not at least heard of obama care and i think that -- i think that what we're seeing is their very real refusal to go along with it because as you say, it's a bad idea for them. >> the white house, charlie, has to be deeply worried about the new harvard millennial poll. only 22% of young americans plan to sign up. 47% say it's unlikely they are going to sign up. i mean, those young people are the ones who are supposed to pay, as you point out, for the higher health costs for older and sick americans. if that doesn't happen, charlie, it could cause what experts say is a death spiral of skyrocketing premiums and then the risk, the collapse of the entire system. right? >> and i think -- absolutely. and i think that is exactly why the administration would much rather spend their time talking about what a disaster the website is and we're going to fix the website and get the glitches out. and you know what, eventually -- and they compare it to

the language of his oppressors and studied their culture. even after the election of a new government with a new constitution, mandela made sure that the old establishment, the civil service, the army, even the hated police was largely kept in place. the white business class was encouraged to participate actively in the new south africa. compare that to so many transitions, for example iraq, where the new regime came in, fired or jailed or killed everyone from the old, and a ten-year civil war followed. instead of vengeance, mandela sought truth and reconciliation. he was not a saint, but rather a political genius. he did what he did because it saved his country. when he came to power, many wondered how he would steer the new country's foreign policy. after all, the african national congress had been supported by the revolution aers of the world, gadhafi, arafat, castro, but mandela knew what was in his country's best interests. he steered it in a pro-western, pro-democratic, pro-market direction, and yet he kept faith with his old comrades honoring them, never forgetting their suppor
